"Beautiful and Spiritual Chapel Overlooking the Pacific Ocean", An Eventective User from Valley Village, CA
I got married at the Wayfarer's Chapel in October 2011, and it was a beautiful, magnificent location. We had the ceremony here on a holiday weekend, and our time here will be remembered forever. This location allows you to have the space for two hours to hold your ceremony and take photos. It felt a little rushed to me, but this is my only complaint about this location. The chapel itself is magnificent. It is made of glass and wood, and it allows natural sunlight to spill in on you and your guests. The chapel is set high on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean, and the views are stunning. The chapel also has lovely lawns and gardens that you and your guests can enjoy before and after the ceremony. Another bonus of this location is the ample parking. The wedding staff here is also wonderful. Our coordinators and minister were kind, understanding and efficient. We had a lot of control over our ceremony within the guidelines given to us. We got to choose all of our own music to be played before, during and after the ceremony, and we were allowed to have a musician friend play and sing a song for us in the middle of the ceremony. One important thing to note is that the photographer and videographer had to stay at the back of the chapel so as to not interfere with the sanctity of the ceremony. All in all, this was the absolute perfect place for me and my husband to get married in Southern California. It was beautiful and spiritual without being too religious.

"Intimate Location with Scenic Beauty", An Eventective User from Manhattan Beach, CA.
Wayfarers Chapel is located in a small forested area, on cliffs over looking the Pacific Ocean. It is an intimate location and probably only holds about one hundred people. It is an old building made almost entirely of glass and surrounded by trees and a view of the Ocean. It is also fairly isolated, so there is little traffic from anyone except your guests. The stonework and glass make an extraordinarily beautiful location, reminiscent of times past. It will beat out any hotel, church or other location you might consider. Since it is indoors, you don't have to worry about poor weather, but still have the feeling of being outside. There is ample parking for all of your guests and very well manicured grounds to wander around before or after the reception. They also provide excellent photo opportunities. The price for use is very reasonable, but might require some advance notice, so plan ahead. The staff is very nice and will do just about anything needed to accommodate you and your guests. One of the nicest things is that little decoration is needed as it is such a beautiful place, so if budget is an issue, you can save a few dollars by leaving out the flowers. The location is fairly isolated, and I don't know if there accommodate receptions there, so it will be a little bit of a drive to get to the reception after the ceremony, but your guests will have plenty to talk about on the way as this little know location is far from ordinary.
